AllMusic Review by

Chrome Dreams' Suspense of Disbelief: The Essential Alfred Hitchcock collects 23 pieces of Hitchcock audio memorabilia, including music from classic films like Vertigo and North by Northwest, horror and suspense-filled spoken word gems like “Music to Be Murdered By,” and even the iconic theme form Hitchcock's 1960’s television program, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Clever, compact, sinister, and well-stocked with contributions from film music legends like Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, and Dimitri Tiomkin, Suspense of Disbelief offers listeners a solid sampler of Hitchcockian atmosphere, without robbing them blind.
